We heartily endorse this message...Just two more sleeps until Birdfair! Who’s excited?! We are!

But the most important thing - even better than our great exhibitors, tasty food, fun events and interesting lectures - every penny that we raise together with YOU, goes towards supporting conservation around the world.

This year, we’re raising money BirdLife’s work in Western Siem Pang, Cambodia: a vast area of deciduous and semi-evergreen forests through which the Sekong River flows.

One of the most amazing facts about the area is that it is home to five Critically Endangered species of bird – a higher concentration than anywhere else in the world. This makes it a vital stronghold that must be preserved.

Western Siem Pang holds 40% of the global population of White-shouldered Ibis, more than 20% of the global population of Giant Ibis and 70% of the Cambodian population of vultures (up to 84 of the 121 individuals left), including the White-rumped Vulture, Slender-billed Vulture and Red-headed Vulture.

Together, we have raised over £5million for international wildlife conservation. Let’s see what we can do this year 💪💪🙌🙌

Las #Salinas de #Calpe son un oasis para las aves en medio de una costa absolutamente ocupada por el turismo de sol y playa. Allí, pese a la cercanía de las torres de apartementos y la presencia de miles de personas, centenares de #flamencos y otras especies de aves buscan refugio y alimento.
Hemos podido disfrutar de ello e incluso leer algunas anillas gracias a nuestro pequeño pero preciso 50 mm ED Pro Compact Scope de Viking Optical.

Calpe saltpans are an excelent #birdwatching spot in the middle of a coast, absolutely occupied by tourism.
There, despite the proximity of apartments towers and thousands of people sunbathing on the beaches, hundreds of flamingos and other birds species use the area for bredding or feeding.

We were able to get some ring codes this mornig thanks to our small but precise 50 mm ED Pro Compact Scope de #VikingOptical.

Thank you, our pleasure!Como todos los años, en agosto los guías de ACTIO Birding,(Virgilio Beltrán Jordá y Rafa Torralba Zapatero) nos reunimos para dar por concluida la temporada y planificar las salidas que ofreceremos para la próximo curso.

Esta vez el encuentro ha sido en #CorralRubio, casi en el centro de nuestro "área de campo" que incluye la Comunitat Valenciana y Castilla La Mancha, con algunas incursiones en Andalucía (#SierradeAndujar y #Doñana) y Aragón (#Gallocanta).

Además de cerrar el calendario para 2019-20, hemos aprovechado para pajarear por el entorno, declarado zona ZEPA y LIC, uno de los mejores lugares #depajareo de la provincia de #Albacete.
Con 38 grados, y la mayoría de lagunas secas, poco se puede ver. Aún así, no estuvo mal el rato que pasamos recorriendo la zona (40 especies en un par de horas).

Y, ahora que acabamos temporada, queremos expresar nuestro agradecimiento a Viking Optical por su apoyo a nuestro proyecto materializado en la cesión de prismáticos y telescopios que utilizamos especialmente en nuestras actividades de #birdingfamiliar.

seguimos demostrando nuestro compromiso ambiental y nuestras buenas practicas en materia de observación de aves con iberaves - turismo ornitológico responsable.

As usual, the guides of ACTIO Birding, meet to plan and agree on the trips we will offer for the next season in August.
This time the meeting was in CorralRubio, almost in the center of our "company patch" that includes @ValenciaRegionBirding and Castilla La Mancha, with some trips in Andalucía (SierradeAndujar and Doñana) and Aragón (Gallocanta).

We closed the calendar for 2019-20, but in adittion we managed to bird watching around one of the best #birding areas in the eastern Spain: Albacete steppes and lagoons.
With 38 degrees and the most of the lagoons dried, few birds could be seen. But, even so, the time was not bad. We reached 40 bird species in our eBird España lists.

Special thanks to Viking Optical for supporting our project with excellent observation gears we can lend our clients, specially in #birdingwithfamilies and #environementaleducation activities.
